Hmm, this sounds interesting. What's the object of it, if there is one?

Subject: [Audyssey] Second Life accessibility Updates
> Hi all,
> Yesterday, while attempting to find updates on this project since the
> blind second life blog doesn't seem to be updating anymore with this
> new-found info, I'll say it below.
> Luise Later, an SL real life visually impaired (Not totally blind)
> user created both a cane and a guide dog, scripted, mind you, to alert
> us of portals etc when navigating. I don't know what the difference
> between the cane or guide dog are, or weather you need both of them,
> but regardless the items are free.
> She also uses a SL screen reader (Well I think it's being made into
> one) called EVA, which speaks objects around you. Don't ask me how
> that works. I just created my SL account from Virtual Ability which,
> BTW, makes the account sign up for second life as accessible as
> filling out a form. An accessible form, that is. Oh, did I mention
> audio captcha?
> And since I'm also sending this out to Mac lists, I'll just say this.
> I haven't tried the SL client yet with VoiceOver. Thus, I have yet to
> find out if you can even interact with anything for even just logging
> in. I guess logging into SL is accessible on the windows side. I'll be
> trying this all out tomorrow, asuming I don't have any homework. And
> before I forget, the cane/dog development team does have one totally
> blind developer, so it's not just VI working on the project. Sure,
> it's only one, but at least he's giving feedback to the project for
> totally blind users.
> The reason why we can't use it on Mac is just one problem, even if you
> can login with VO. Eva. Eva is for windows only. Without that, we
> can't communicate and hear what's around us.
> Okay. Well, here is the blog posting on the promotion of Luise's
> presentation on this which we all mist.
> Hope to see all you guys who like testing an incompleted product to
> come join me. I'd hate to do this alone with the team. Or, at least, I
> think I'd be the only one...
